Uh...excuse me...when did THAT happen? did I get old enough to have a friend who is now a grandma?! Seriously. WHEN?
My friend Dawn and I have been friends for over 20 years. We met when her daughter was a year old. She went everywhere with us. Shelly...she was such a cutie. And so good.
Well, somehow, Shelly became a young woman. All of a sudden she was grown. How is that? How can she be 23 already when I still feel 23? Can you answer me that?
Regardless of MY refusal to grow up, Shelly did. And she met a young man. And they...had a baby. THIS baby...Audrey.
Oh dear, look at that sweet baby. I held her yesterday, the little peanut. She was all swaddled and content. And her hair was so soft...and smelled like newborn...the BEST smell ever. Look at that sweet mouth! I could hardly stand how sweet she was...perfect.

And tired. Very, very tired. After all, it's really hard work being born.
Welcome little miss are perfect and precious.
